Chapters include:

• ‘Playing with Style’
Choosing part of an accompaniment style to play with your left hand – and ‘borrowing’ elements from several styles to create your own ‘mix and match’ accompaniments.

• Using and creating registrations
How to use the Registration Memory to create settings for new songs – and a useful way of making, saving and naming registrations based on the sheet music in your collection.

• Using Sound Effects
Discover where the library of sound effect voices is stored in your keyboard or Clavinova – and then add these voices to registrations or, for keyboard owners, record them into multi pads for quick access during a performance.

• Using Footswitches
How to install and set up footswitches on a keyboard – or assign specific functions to the pedals of a Clavinova – and how to use more than one footswitch at a time to control rhythm fills, breaks, and change registrations during a performance.
